Germany’s second Electronic Drummer Meeting

Monday, September 19th, 2011

After the success in 2010 we decided to organize a second edition of our electronic drum meeting. Once again the idea was to give electronic drums a focus and the enthusiasts a platform to present their DIY projects. Commercial providers were more than welcome. We are happy that companies like Alesis, Drum-Tec, 2Box, Korg, Wronka Drums and R-Drums proactively joined our event.

And once again we were lucky that we had great performers like Sibi on his Simmons SDSV with a spectacular oversized headphone-like monitor system custom-built by Föön Audio Systems (by far the coolest drum fill I have ever seen/heard…). We had Daniel Schild who demonstrated the Korg Wave Drum family and we had Marcel Bach who performed his cutting edge drum technique on an Alesis DM10 Pro kit. Last but not least R-Drums, provider for DIY parts (trigger mics, rubber foam cones, …) demonstrated the conversion of a cheap low-tec mono pad into a perfect working  stereo mesh head pad.
